The Reviews for Tiger on Beat (1988) 1080p

Prett good, 80's buddy cop comedyReviewed byiaidoVote: 6/10

Before Tiger on a Beat hits the ten-minute mark Chow Yun Fat is taken hostage, not only does he wet his paints, but he faints and falls into a puddle of his own urine. If his wardrobe of a black sun visor, a Hawaiian print shirt tied at the waist, and bright colored golf pants didn't clue you in that he is not the same tough character he played in The Killer, Prison on Fire, or Hard Boiled, that diner holdup scene will. However, in the same scene he does swallow eighth raw eggs in one gulp, so thats to his credit.

Tiger on a Beat features Yun Fat and muscle-bound Conan Lee (who looks like Jackie Chan on steroids) as mismatched cops, Yun-Fat the unambitious, streetwise, womanizer, and Lee the hot-tempered, rookie. Its a buddy cop movie, the Hong Kong Lethal Weapon or Running Scared, with less emphasis on action than the cops drama-comedy antics in trying to bust a drug smuggler. They use a girl named Marydonna, who has started smuggling dope for her no good brother, to try and catch the gang, one of whom is the great Gordon Lui as the main henchman, but even rarer is the fact that he has hair (fans will know what I mean). Veteran Lau Kar Lueng keeps the pace going, though the action is minimal, until a fantastic final battle that involves Conan Lee and Gordon Lui dueling with some big chainsaws. Other than that it is your standard fare, some humor, some drama, an action scene or two. The film is dated, you can tell it was an 80's flick as easily Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. Die-hard Hong Kong action fans should enjoy it. All others may want to approach with caution, as the comedy and wardrobe may be too silly for some tastes.

Also, A Better Tomorrow fans take note, Ling Ti does a cameo as an informant.

Hong Kong Lethal Weapon?Reviewed byAntzy88Vote: 8/10

'Tiger On The Beat' is considered by some to be the Hong Kong version of 'Lethal Weapon', in which Chow Yun-Fat plays Sergeant Francis Li, a police officer who has not had a promotion in 11 years due to his constantly chasing women with his irrepressible charm instead of knuckling down to his work. His supervisor gives him his big case that he needs to earn a promotion -- a drug heist that may or may not involve a group of local Thais -- and is put with antagonistic martial-arts cop Michael Tso (Conan Lee).

Unfortunately, Francis and Michael really do not see eye to eye, and clash frequently over many things. But when things hot up, can they put their differences aside for long enough, especially when their trail leads to that of a possible link to the crime, a woman named Marie-Donna (Nina Li Chi ['Twin Dragons'], who's now best known for being married to Jet Li), is thrown into the mix?

This is more of a comedy than an all-out actioner, and some possible unintentional comedy can be found in the 1980's fashions (bright yellow trousers, anyone?). The intentional humour will depend on whether you are watching an English dub (which, like many other English dubs, loses some of that comedy) or its original Cantonese with English subtitles (and those will depend on who released the version you watched). Some of the humour doesn't travel that well outside of the Cantonese-speaking market, but there's still some great one-liners in the version I saw (the DVD release by Hong Kong Legends, which also has an audio commentary from Bey Logan explaining some of the more obscure gags), and one particular one from Chow when up against a Western kung-fu fighter had me in stitches when I first saw it -- just the timing of it! Chow is actually a gifted comedy performer, and for those used to his work in 'The Killer', 'Hard-Boiled' or even 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' may be surprised at this difference. He does still get to do some action himself, though.

As with many Hong Kong 1980's movies, the main reason people lapped up these movies was because of the action sequences, and that's largely where Conan Lee comes in, although he really doesn't get that much fighting to do in the movie. He still gets to do a one-on-one encounter with Gordon Liu (recently seen in 'Kill Bill') in which they are both armed with some very unique weapons in one of the most memorable battles of this era (I won't give it away but it's crazy!). Still, there are some bits that make you really wish that things had worked out better for Conan (who's also known as Lloyd Hutchinson in other movies) in terms of his potential career as an action superstar.

One thing I should warn women in particular of, however, is a scene where Francis and Marie-Donna have a bit of a disagreement. It's something that played well to local audiences in Hong Kong, but many Westerners may object to it and it may leave an unpleasant taste in the mouth, and it wouldn't surprise me if even some Chinese-speakers found it over-the-top in today's climate.

All in all, though, while not completely great, it does have a certain retro charm, and the action in it is enjoyable.

Fluff, but fun fluff.Reviewed byleighmVote: 7/10

A pleasant police/buddy comedy starring Chow Yun-Fat and Conan Lee. The requisite action scenes are there as well as a few dramatic moments, but this one is still played more for laughs. It reminded me of a Hong Kong "48 Hrs", but brightened considerably by the two leads. A fun way to waste a couple of hours.
